Dog owners often feel a special emotional connection with their furry friends, but the new vest offers the owners an accurate understanding of what their pet is thinking. CNET reports that the Japanese company Langualess has created an Inupathy clip that measures the dog’s heart rate. It was demonstrated this week at the CES 2020 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, with a launch in the United States scheduled for late this year.
The vest analyzes the heart rate and predicts the emotional state of the animal, displaying it in color on the vest. The data was obtained thanks to tests on real dogs - animals were given a treat and measured heart rate. The vest transfers data to an application that allows owners to track their dog’s emotional state over time. If the vest shows blue light, the animal is relaxed. Red light shows excitement.
A study conducted last year showed that people can “read” the dog’s emotions, but the ability to recognize them is acquired with age and experience. Researchers invited 89 adult participants and 77 children to participate in the experiment. They were given photographs of dogs, chimpanzees and people, and asked to evaluate how the characters in the pictures show happiness, sadness, anger or fear. The experiment showed that older people were better able to recognize dog emotions.
U.S. startup Air Protein has developed a technology that can produce carbon dioxide proteins. It is reported by Meat-Inform.
It is reported that the new technology is based on previous research by American biotechnologists who, in the twentieth century, learned how to make food with the help of bacteria that feed on carbon dioxide and are able to turn carbon into valuable food components.
The developers hope that their invention will be useful to astronauts, since the manufacture of food products from carbon is quite convenient.
The main idea is that bacteria will process the air that the astronauts exhale into a protein flour-like mixture. Then add water and trace elements to it, which will make the taste of the new substance look like meat.
Also, this product can be suitable for both vegans and vegetarians.
Earlier, "Journalist" reported that scientists have found a way to make the body defeat cancer tumors.
F-Eye UAV Technology has tested an alcohol-powered drone.
Testing of the FY-36 drone on methanol was held in conjunction with the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, writes the South China Morning Post.
Today, several companies in the world are developing drones with fuel cells. Most of them use hydrogen as fuel.
The weight of the FY-36 drone, which was tested in China, is 15 kg. The device can carry another 3 kg of payload. The drone is made according to the airplane scheme with the main propeller in the tail. In addition, the device is equipped with two beams on which there are two electric motors with rotors - they are needed for vertical take-off and landing.
F-Eye UAV Technology has already completed more than 15 test flights. In the future, the developers intend to create a larger model of a drone that will carry heavy loads.
The Finnish government has created an introductory online course on artificial intelligence for citizens of the country. Now everyone has access to it as a Christmas present
About it writes The Verge.
In total, the course consists of 6 sections. They describe what artificial intelligence is, what problems it solves and where it is applied. Finland promises to translate the course into all languages of the countries of the European Union. A lecture entitled “Elements of Artificial Intelligence” is available in English, Swedish, Estonian, German and Finnish.
It will be possible to go from anywhere in the world.
In Finland, about 55 thousand citizens have already completed the course. In total, it may take from 5 to 10 hours to study one section. The Finnish government initially developed a course to give citizens an edge in the field of artificial intelligence.
Scientists call such a device a non-invasive way to collect and compile information about your health without leaving your home.
Scientists Joshua Kun and Jan Miller and two participants in the study found that the molecular composition of their urine shows how much they slept, what physical activity they did, how much they consumed alcohol or coffee, and when and how many over-the-counter drugs they took. Urine actually contains a “liquid history” of a person’s eating habits, performing or not performing physical exercises, taking medications, sleeping, and other lifestyle elements. This fluid also contains metabolic indications of more than 600 human diseases, including major killers such as cancer, diabetes, and kidney disease. ”
Scientists hope that their product will be ready in five years.
